The fast-track procedure offers researchers an opportunity to collect last-minute data on current topics within the GESIS Panel. Eligible studies should address a current topic, such as important forthcoming events (e.g., elections), contemporary changes in society (e.g., migration), or issues of public discussion (e.g., minimum wages). Please make sure to clearly justify the urgency of your data collection.
The submitted questionnaire may comprise (a) up to three short single-choice questions, (b) one multiple choice question with a maximum of seven items, or (c) one open-ended question. In contrast to regular proposals, this questionnaire does not have to be submitted as a Unipark questionnaire, nor does it undergo an external review process.
All you need to do is to fill in the Fast-Track-Submission Form (1022 KB), and sign the GESIS Panel General Terms and Conditions, and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Among all eligible proposals submitted before the deadline, the GESIS Panel Team randomly selects one questionnaire for the upcoming wave.
The deadline ends usually two months before data collection starts.
